  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
An intensive Engineering school in Flint, MI that puts students in 3-Month rotations that alternate between school and work. Students take place in this program for 4.5 years, and end up having 2.5 years of work experience as well. A very close community of 2,000 students.
Joseph from Lake Orion, MI
Kettering is the best Co-Op School in America. With hundreds of company links all across the country, and an incredible Common Core-less curriculum, they WILL set you up for success in your future. Just as they will mine.
Samuel from Bellbrook, OH
When it comes to engineering, look no further. The best are made here and the rest can't compare to here.
Justin from Fenton, MI
This is the best place you could go if you plan to major in engineering. Kettering mixes schooling with working at a real life job so you will be more experienced than the average student at other universities. It's hard work, but it definitely pays off.
